Fly on the Wall

I remember hearing the phrase, "If I could be a fly on the wall" so many times in my life. As a child I literally imagined being a tiny insect sitting on a wall watching everything going on in the room. What must that look like? Now that I'm older I still wonder what I… Continue reading Fly on the Wall

What day is it?…A little peek inside a Mom Brain

Have you ever wondered what happens inside another mom's brain? Like, you've considered calling up Miss. Frizzle from the Magic School Bus and asking her to shrink down her little bus and drive right in into another mom's thought process? Yes?

A daily task with rules and procedures I can't seem to rationalize in my mind. Thoughts… Continue reading The Cow

The Tell Challenge

I've so often wondered why we keep certain thoughts to ourselves. Things we notice or admire about others. Times we've been uplifted or felt special at the thoughtfulness of another.

Mom Not-Fails

Last week I grilled hamburgers on the indoor electric grill. Why? Well, it was raining, we have no propane in the outside grill and I'm terrified to use it anyway, so you can just pick one. Anyway, it has a grease tray. The tray was full and I bumped it. Not so bad, except I… Continue reading Mom Not-Fails
